Endangered, Vulnerable, and Threatened Species

Has cheetahs habitat changed?


Wiki User

IUCN's red list. Though they do not live in forests and are not succumbing to deforestation they are being hunted to extinction. Their habitat has changed; it has been shrinking because humans are overtaking them. Cheetahs used to be in India, and the Middle East, but no more. Their spotted pelts are expensive, and they also feast on livestock which means farmers do not hesitate to kill them.

"The question is what species will become extinct that humans do not know they depend on?" - Thomas Mind 2009
